About the Author
Martin Handford began his career as a freelance illustrator specializing in drawing crowd scenes for numerous clients. The turning point came when

he was asked to create a book showcasing his singular talent, and the character Waldo was born. "I can t tell you how pleased I am that Waldo has taken on a life of his own," says the man behind the Waldo books. "I d like to inspire children - to open their minds, to explore more subjects, and to just be aware of what s going on around them. I d like them to see wonder in places that might not have occurred to them."
